I started up a new SketchUp project after not using the program for about a month and a half. I cannot enter manual dimensions any more.
For example, I start with a new project, add a rectangle, hit the Tab key to manually enter the dimensions of the rectangle. For one thing, the Dimensions input is not highlighted as it used to be after hitting the Tab key.
But more importantly, if I were to enter “12 1/2’” when hitting the spacebar between “12” and “1/2” the Measurements input goes blank and the rectangle is no longer selected. This behavior with entering spaces while typing out dimensions seems to be the big issue. Any time I hit the spacebar, the Measurements input goes blank and I cannot continue entering anything.
Same behavior if I attempt to enter a measurement while doing a scale operation.
This is SketchUp version 17.2.2554 and Mac OS Sierra version 10.12.5
Thank you if you can share any insight into why this is happening.
